    By free time I mean anything that doesn't involve uni work or jobs etc

    Well I suppose I have 3 hours when I'm travelling there and back - I use that time mostly to watch programmes on my iPad.

    Other than that, not a lot.

    Depends how your course is organised and your coursework/reading lists, which change from term to term. One term of my undergrad, I had 8 hours of lectures on a Monday then nothing Tue-Fri. Not the uni's greatest timetabling moment, but it left me the majority of the week to focus on reading lists and assignment research.

    Depends on the day and how close deadlines are, but usually a lot

    I have loads of free time, I'm hoping it's because I only have one or two lectures a day and a seminar every second day, and not because I'm not doing enough studying.

    As much or as little as you want, depends entirely on how dedicated you are.

    The answer to this question depends so much on the course, the university, the timetable and the person that it's not going to be very informative.

    In my experience I have gone from having three hours a week at the start of my MSC to pulling 14 hour days 7 days a week in the space of a few months at the end of my BSc.

    It also depends on your course! For example, I study history and banter has followed me and my timetable for 3 years because I literally have hardly any lectures!
    So for me, I'd have a lot more free time, but of course, there's the reading as well which does take up a little bit (dependent on how seriously you take 1st year, which I personally would recommend to just aim to pass)

    On the other hand, my friends who do Business and Management or Accounting and Finance have a really rough timetable and are in practically full days.

    But ultimately I suppose it really depends on yourself in how many lectures you want to miss and how much work you want to do!

    It really depends on you're planning to study as some courses have a lot more contact hours as well as huge amounts of work.
